In the late 1800’s there was a swami who was a devout atheist. He had a wooden sign in his office that read, “God is Nowhere!”
Then one day while quizzing his child (who was just learning to read). He noticed the child trying to read his sign. He encouraged the child to sound it out.
Since the word “nowhere” was a big word to read, the child broke it up into 2 different words, “Now” and “Here!” Then the little one read the sign. “God is Now Here!”
The swami couldn’t hardly believe the words “now” and “here” were in the word he had banked on to convey his atheism. But he began to think about, what the child had uncovered.
He began a search to see if there was indeed a God or not. Much to his surprise, he found the very One that he said, never existed. As God revealed Himself to the swami through everything around him including the child. The swami became a believer in God and later concluded this…
God is in the present! Man looks to the past and to the future, but rarely at the present moment. But that is precisely where God is! God is a God of the “Now”! He works and operates in the present tense.
So in the moments of ones life, God is present “Now” and He is always “Here” when you call on Him.
Jesus says this about the little children seeing and praising God in the Bible…
Matthew 21:15-16 The Message (MSG)
15-16 When the religious leaders saw the outrageous things he was doing, and heard all the children running and shouting through the Temple, “Hosanna to David’s Son!” they were up in arms and took him to task. “Do you hear what these children are saying?”
Jesus said, “Yes, I hear them. And haven’t you read in God’s Word, ‘From the mouths of children and babies I’ll furnish a place of praise’?”
My friends, if God can’t get the truth through our own hard-heads. Then He will try and show Himself to us through His creation, nature, other people and the little children. Oh! What a mighty, loving God we serve!
Our God is indeed in the “Now” and He is “Here” in the present with us! Bless His holy name!
